One of the new features of the iPhone 15 family was the inclusion of a USB Type-C port in place of the Lightning connector. But it seems that Apple would not make it easier for anyone who wants to use the USB-C cable from an Android cell phone.
According to information published in the international press, users in China report that Apple Store units in the country are advising against the use of “Android cables” on the iPhone 15.
The justification for the discouragement would include concerns about the excessive heating of the Cupertino giant’s new smartphones, throughout the charging process. On the other hand, there are experts who consider it to be just protectionism for the components market, to preserve the company’s profits. .
This type of positioning has been seen not only on Chinese soil, but would also be a recommendation in several official stores around the world. Despite the recommendation appearing in the brand’s official stores, the company did not release any official statement on the subject.
Among the benefits of adopting USB-C for the new iPhones is greater integration between devices from different companies. It would be possible to use the same cable throughout the ecosystem, as well as using a cell phone with reverse charging to fill the battery of an iPhone 15, for example.
Despite any advice from Apple employees, it is up to the user to decide which cable to use on their cell phone. The most appropriate suggestion in this case is to use original cables, regardless of the brand.
Which side of this controversy are you on? Do you think it’s ideal to use a cable sold by Apple, or do you think it’s okay to use a third-party accessory? Give us your opinion!
